    How were the brembo's did they improve your breaking? I was led to belive there isnt a b6 s4.... Maybe they meant there isnt a b6 rs4!

    You can fit either b5 s4 or b6 b7 s4 brake upgrades all depends on your budget really I have b5 s4 setup to put on as it came up for cheap.

    There is no b6 rs4 but the are plenty of s4's. I like the brembos and for the money im happy with them. Had ebc ultimax dimpled and grooved before the brembos. They looked good behind the wheel but were crap when they got warm and produced loads of brake dust and didnt last very long.

    Pabs can you send me a link from where you got your brake setup? Did you go for 312mm discs?

    Yes mate 312mm and 255mm rear that's standard fitment on the 190's, I went on the brembo online parts catalogue to get the correct part numbers for the discs and pads then had a look on eBay. Definitely check the part numbers as loads of sellers were trying to sell me the wrong size discs and the wrong pads, I will try and find the seller I got mine off and get the part numbers for you
